Continuing my tradition, I took photos of folks at the recent ABA Section of Dispute Resolution conference. You can click here to see the photo collections I previously posted, along with an explanation of what they represent.
Below are pictures from the conference, which are limited to shots (1) of people with whom I happened to cross paths, (2) when I had my camera and the presence of mind to take a picture instead of just gab, (3) when people tolerated my interruption of their conversations to let me boss them into letting me take their picture, and (4) of people that readers of this blog are likely to know. As a result, this is a very incomplete and unrepresentative sample of people at the conference, in no particular order.
Josh Stulberg received this year’s scholarship award and during his acceptance speech, he led the audience in a rousing version of the touching British World War II Song, “We’ll Meet Again, which was sung by Vera Lynn, “The Forces’ Sweetheart.” Here are the lyrics and you can see shots of Josh and the chorus, below.
We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where, don’t know when,
But I know we’ll meet again
Some sunny day.
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do,
‘Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.
So will you please say hello
To the folks that I know,
Tell them I won’t be long.
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go,
I was singing this song.

The Josh Stulberg Chorale
I spent some time tooling around the Twin Cities, in part thanks to my inimitable tour guide, Jim Coben, and here’s a link to some photos you might want to check out.
